Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Phyllodoce mucosa-maculata: Free-living, very active bristle worm with parapodia whose dorsal cirri are remarkably large and leaf-like (resembling paddles). Heart-shaped head with two eyes and four antennae. Eversible unarmed proboscis covered with rows of large and/or small papillae. Colour ranges from white to yellowish with transverse dark brown bands or patches. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Phyllodoce mucosa-maculata: In the 1976-1986 period Phyllodoce mucosa/maculata was widely distributed in the entire near-coastal zone and reached a maximum density of 70 ind./m2. The species showed a similar distribution pattern in the 1994-2001 period. However, P. mucosa/maculata was absent near the eastern coastal zone and higher densities (up to 1,500 ind./m2) were reached in the latter period. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Phyllodoce mucosa-maculata is found in sediments with a wide variety of grain sizes (maximum 500 μm), but displays a preference for sediments with a median grain size between 100 and 300 μm (relative occurrence > 30%). A similar pattern is observed with regard to the mud content preference: Phyllodoce mucosa-maculata is found in sediments with strongly varying mud contents, but prefers sediments with a mud content up to 40% (relative occurrence: minimum 40%). [details]
